From “After God”, by Don Cupitt


“I am only a local and wholly contingent secondary privatisation of bits of the general cultural flux.  [cf. with post from Jan Westerhoff, below – 19 Dec]


In the new understanding of culture as a system of signs in motion, the world of symbolic meaning in which we live is an outsideless and unanchored floating continuum. All reactions against it must use its vocabulary and are therefore part of it, and will be engulfed by it. You can’t really drop out. There is nowhere to drop out to. Your protest against the system remains part of the system.”
